It waa juet at .<nn?et. and Somehow those long. Biournful *un >r tones seemed the fitting close mt the day's aorriee?that autumn day which had arisen on tho mountains in garments of sar-hine, and marched through the hours in fcaaaty ?ad rejoicing * tiring "Glory to God!" 'he Crt?tor of its rood and perfect gift. Hut it was a day fraught with dread and forebodings to thousands of homes and hoar's in the land, for tho voioe of war was abroad in tho earth, and mothers had strained their 4*ave sons Cor the last time to their boaoina. and seen then go forth to the battle, and husbands and fathers had laid aside the plow and the wiytbo. and shouldered their mtisketo. and tahee their lives in their hands for the sake of I ^ a - ? ? - ? f-r^ractn, ana in tne stmt or tlie (iod of battles. bo do?p shadows lay on the <|uiet oountry ' hreeholds of almost every home in New England that autumn day, and almost erory hearth-stone was an altar where anxious, loving hearts sent up a cry to Qod for their beloved Mr? l'almer. wife of doaccn John Palmer, of Woodstock, stood in the wide, oldfasbioned kitchen of the dingy, yellow farm house, which she bsou^hther nusband on her marriage morning. She was an ample, motherly, pi want-freed looking woman, whose whole pnysiognomy corresponded with the r?otr Strings of red peppers and rows of dried apples were festooned along the ceiling, while a swinging board fastened to the beam, which divided the hall overhead, was burdened with herbs tad berries; hams, dried beans, reds and a motley variety of domestic wares. Mrs. Palmer's life had slipped over iU * - - lue'Q summer, and her black hair was thickly rtfied with gray, and thore were lines about her forehead, and the smile in her faded eyes had something rarrowtul about it, for Mr?. Palmer had walked with grief many times; and *)f the ten fair boys and girls who had been gathered to her maternal heart, only two remained to her old age. It was a small family under the roof of the old gr*y homestead on earth, but a larger one in that goldeu upper homestead whose blessed threshold is ucrer darkened by the phadow of death. Mns. Palmer paused as her ear caught the faint, sweet echoee of the stage-horn, and she deposited half a dosen freshly-boiled doughnuts in the pan on the table, murmuring to herself, "Now, for all the world, if that isn't the mail oo?ing in! Who knows bat what there amy be some news from Reuben ?" Ah, if you had heard how her voioe lingered over the name, you would hare known she was his mother. " I wonder if that boy'll take any sort o' fare of himself," continued the fond mother, dexterously convolving several strips of dough *nd planting them in the large iron kettle which hang over the fire, filled with boilinr fat. which iodignantly snapped and sputtered at their intrusion. "If there was a fray, he'd be sure to be foremost, for he al'ays was poking his head into II aorta o* danger, and never seemed to feel ^uite so eontent as when there was a oh unco o' getting his neck off his shoulders. ' I never could exactly see where he got his harum-scarum turn, for his father was al'ays a sober-minded man; hat it was amaiin' bow he'd be ?*rtin to come out straight.

I know it's true as Scriptur , but I can't help thinkin' the Lord 'Uahow marsy on my weakness, oos ke's all I't? cot, and after a great many struggles I t* given up the other# to Him; but my very life a bound up in that boy, and if anything should happen t> him. God knows it would break hi* poor old mother's heart." And Mrs. Palmer broke down hnre, and she tat down on the old oakeu chest, and wiped her eyes on the corner nf her cheek apron. Light warbling* of some oM psalm tune fluttered down the stair-case, and tfcen the door opened, and a pleasant-looking girl burst suddenly into the room. Rabecca Palmer was tweaty-one, and the t . ? i _ t a . _ - e?gai oi n?r ortgni young iaoe ?u like a picture rejoicing the eyes. 8he wu not beautiful. but her cheek* were fall the glow of joath and the richness of perfect health.

The tiro women bent their beads reverently orer the board, waiting for the deaeon to invoke his customary blessings upon the meal; bat no sound broke the stillness. Mrs. Pataer glanoed up at bar hatband; bis bead, too,was bent over his plate; and astream of oandle light falling on hie face, revealed it tally to her gate. "John, something hat happened to you tonight," the said, leaning forward, and breathlevly searching bis face. A deep, convulsive sort of groan heaved out of the old man s lips; and both of the women grew white at they heard it. " Ob,what U it, father? do tell us!'' flattered up the frightened voice of Rebecca. Mrs. Palmer rose and wont to her husband, and laid her shaking fingers on his hard hand: '* Oh, John, it ain't anything about Reuben?" Sho cried out the words as one might if sword had struok suddenly into hia heart. Rebecca had sat still at the table, her sweet face struok white with wonder and fear, and her brown eyes fastened on her parents; but now she sprang up. and dropped down on her knees at the deacon's feet: "Oh, father, do say it isn't Reuben!" And her voice was like her mother's. The deaoon opened his lips, but he oould not xpeak He took the hands of his wife and his child, and covered them with his own trembling ones. "Oh, Lord, have mercy upon us!" groaned the stricken man! and then they knew. Mrs. Palmer crept up to her husband, and whispered, in a faint, broken voice: "Jest say my boy isn't dead, father. I can bear to hear anything else." And the deaoon made no answer; but the ervAat t na ro f?U <4a<b? ^ 1 -* * - * ?o.i uvnu ma luiruwea cnecKS, au<l it was enough. The tidings of the disastrous battle at Long Island, which closed the summer of 1776, had filled the land with mourning, for thousands of widows and orphans had been made in that terrible hoar, when so many brave Americans lay dead on the battle-field; and the news of the successful skirmish which took place the followiag month near King's Bridge, in New York, was everywhere hailed with glad noes and gratitude, and the little village of Woodstock bore its part in the general rejoicing on that autuuin night, when the stage first brought in the tiriinira The deacon'* family wta the only one in Woodstock to whom the news brought any sorrow, for it was in thin engagement that Reuben had fallen, lie was a great favorite throughout the village, and every heart wag filled with sadness when it thought on that bright, handsome face lying stark and rigid on the battle-field. It was late that evenioz when Parson Hunter entered the stricken bouse, for friends and neighbors feared to intrude on its awful grief. But the tendor-hcarted old minister could not rest till he had carried the swoet oalm of his love and faith into their broken hearts Parson liunter was a tall, white-haired old man, a fine representative of the ataunch old Puritan minister, but beneath some stateliness and austerity of manner beat a heart where were all fair and fragrant blossoms, and golden fruits of charity and love; a heart In whose pleasant and goodly paths the angels loved to walk with their shining faces, and of whom they wrote, '-Of suoh Is the kingdom of heaven r' The minister found the family in the kitchen, where we left it utterly crushed down by grief, which expressed itself neither by moans nor tears. Mrs. Palmer sat in the large arm-chair before the fire, where her husband had placed her, the crimson light fluttering over her face, which seemed frozen to stono, and her tearless eyes fastened in a blank gate on ihe wall, and it wits well, perhaps, that alarm for ber reason or her life had somewhat diverted her thoughts of the deacon and his daughter from the dead to the living, though it seemed to the minister that the last hour nad done the work of yoars on both of them " My friends," said the minister, speaking in his deep, solemn tone'. " I should not have come into your house of mourning to-night, feeling that the Lord could speak to your hearts hotter thanl; bat 1 remembered that it was twenty-four years ago this very month when yeu brought Reuben up to the altar to dedicate him to his God, and I felt that I had a right and title to oome." And the** words unlocked Mrs. Palmer's face. 8ho turned suddenly toward the old man as the visit of that Sabbath morning rose and walked up its long path of years and stood before her " 1 ?ee him! I ie? him!" ahe sobbed out. " with the little brown curia a danjin' round his face, and the marry brown eyes blinkia' under theiu. My little Reuben! he waa the s wee teat baby that ever gladdened a mother's heart, aod I waa so proud of him, and I thought God would spare him to be the ataff of his mother'* old age, because I bad given all the others to him. Oh, Parson Hunter, it oan't be true that I shall never look into hia face, again, never hear the sound of his voice, that he's lyin' off there on the battle-field, and his mother waa not there to smooth away the hair , from his forehead, or give him one kiss when iaavah ntv *""a *! -r uvi iw? mi iuo mi uoe : The old man ut still, overwhelmed by thii mighty burst of a mother's agouy. He closed his ayes for the tears that filmed them, and fait that for her he had neither help nor consolation. ' The Lord gave and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord." The low, solemn tones of the preacher, scarcely above a whisper, fell into the hearts of the hearers and stilled tbem, as man's never could, aa only tlod'a oan.

A yo?ng man walked along the country road slowly and wearily, leaning upon a stoat oak staff; his face was ghastly white, and he wore the bine uniform of the "Continentals.'1 He had a terrible wound in his right shoulder, and had been left on the battle-Held for dead.

She tamed quickly, and aa her eyw fall upon hia face, a ghastly pallor crept over hen. Sha oorered it with her handa, and uttered a shriek not load, for it seemed to lie for very terror is her throat. " Why, Becky, do look ap here! Now haven't you got a better welcome than this for your brother when he's oome back from the dead, like?" But she cowered oloser down In the grass, and moaned and shivered lire the leaves in the old park pear tree. " Bee here now, what on earth ails 70a ? If ?oa lake me for a spirit, jest look up and I'll e able to convince 70a I'm honest flesh and blood yet." Ue lifted her up with one arm, for ahe was too weak betwixt fright and wonder to resist; bat the old, familiar, hearty tones half assured her Sha lifted her face from her hands and looked at her brother's a moment with a strained,wild glance; then the glad troth broke into her heart, for the haiel ejos had their old roguish ?:lacce. though they were set in a pale, wasted ace. "Ob, Rouben, Reuben. I thought it was a ghost!" and she fell upon his neck with a wild sob of joy. It was long before he could get her to talk rationally. She would throw her arms around his neck. and. hutrein? him tiirhtlv. murmur such tender words over him, betwixt sobs and laughter, as Reuben Palmer had not heard since be lay, a babe, in his mother's crib. " You precious, darlin' fellow, have you really come back to us alive? Bless your heart, how white and changed you arc! Oh, Reuben, darlin', is it really juu, or am I dreamin'?" And at last she grew calmer, and was able to tell ber brother of that terrible night when the awful tidings came of his death, and how they hadn't one of them smiled sinoe; and how, though his mother tried to "bear up," every one who looked in her face could see that her heart was broken. And both the young man and the maiden sat down on the grass and wept as though they were little children. At last Rebecca rose up. ' Oh, what will mother say? You must come right into the house. Reuben; only p'raps I'd better break it to bar Blow like, for she's weakly now, and the ?uddcu jjy might kill her. Oh, thore's lather"' And they saw the old deacon come slowly into the yard and alight from his horse just before tba barn door, and remove the heavy bags of flour from the animal's back; for the old man had just returned from the mill. " We'll go and tell him first. You just keep around the corner of the barn, and I'll break the news," cried Rebecca. She came panting up to her father just as he was leading the horce into the barn. "Oh, say, father, I want to tell you?some* it.: f- u- j tn tiling B iiippoueu . The old man turned mnd lonke-l into the eager face of hi? daughter, and his son, standing a little way off, could see the change which the last two weeks bad wrought in his face. " Well, what is it, my child ?" " You'll be so glad, father, and yet?I can't tell it. Oh, Reuben, do come here !" And he came out. "Father!" The vague superstitions which almost all country people held at that period of ghosts who haunted their old homes, and visits made by the dead to the living, at once suggested even to tbe well-balanced mind of the deacon the possibility of hia sou's spirit returning to him. j lis turned white as his child had done, but he did not speak, and Rebecca cried out, " Don't be afeard, father. It isn't a ghost, but Reuben's own self, and he wasn't dead, aa wa all thought." One long, steady glance, and the father knew his child. "Oh Ueuben, my son Reuben, the Lord be praised And tho father and son fell upon each other's neck, like Jacub and Joseph of old, and wept. " We mutt break it to mother easy, children, or it'll aartiu kill her for joy," said the old man, vigorously wiping his faoe with hit pocket-handkerchief. So it wat arranged that Deacon Palmor should go in and break the joyful tidings to his wife according to hit best judgment. The trio went to the house ; l>eacon Palmer entered the kitchen, and his children stood iust outside the door. wh?r? fhov onnl.! very word. Mr*. Palmer was slicing aoine apples into a wooden bowl. She did not look up aa her huuband entered; all these weeks she had gone on with her household dutiee, carefully find assiduously as ever, but with a faoo which grew more patient and pale every day? more like the faces over which the grasses grow and the winds walk. " Wall, Becky," she said, " I couldn't make out what had kept you. You've been k hoap of time huntin1 taern pears." All the life had gone out of her voice; it was .. f,.n '?t -- i i?

" What kind o' news, father?" with toaroely a faint atir of intereat. " Ahem?wall, thia ia from ihe army." Tha old woman sighed. " Then the Lord's given us another victory over our enemy." "Wall, not that exactly. It'* aomethin' that oonaarna us more nearly?aomethin' that'll give you great joy, mother." Poor old uian ! Ha was internally congratulating himself on the tact and discretion with whioh he had approached hia subject; but he could not keep a tone of triumphant gladness out of his voioa, and he was not astute enough for a woman'a quick intuitions. "John," she said, turning round and looking him full in the f*o??a look that fairly staggered him?" have you heard anything about Reuben?" " Wall, yes, it did conaarn him?." He broke iown here. " Reuben, come in and let your mother h*ar for h*m?!f " " Mother !" She ff*re one long, greedj look as his shadow fell over the threshold. She comprehended it all in that glanee, and stretched out her ami as ha rushed forward, bat they on!/ clutched at the air, for before she could gather him to her heart she had fallen to the floor. Har son that was dead waa alire again, bat the methvfa joy was more than her heart could bear. But the color soon oame to the faded eheeks, and at erea-tida oa that happy day was heard in good Deaoon Palmer's booaa the roioe of praise aad thanksgiving to Him who in His wisdom " taketh away," but in inerey 44 restoreth again."
